   attributes that may lead to call failures (e.g., candidates,
   fingerprints, crypto, etc.) for different reasons out of scope to
   this document. ...

This SHOULD NOT statement if a bit vague.  The previous sentence lists
specific attributes, and I see why that might be difficult to match
here, but it does not tell an implementer what attributes to not
